Can you post a screenshot of the particular wallpaper?

And  i will recommend the following tool to start with:

Windows malicious software removal tool
Use ad-aware, ewido scan, f-secure scan and probably Trend Micro Housecall scan. Also use HiJackThis (do a scan and check every line, if you know this or that software). The problem is that if you allowed one virus to your PC, it's likely that it has already downloaded a number of others and you'll have to clean it.
What is the name of the program on the wallpaper that they ask you to download to clear the infections
